this patch addresses an unfortunate regression where backtick characters
in a manifest can cause an AIOOBE.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8186334

Basically an off-by-one issue during certain steps in the search algorithm,
meaning it is context dependent whether a backtick will trip on this issue
or not.
